Usually I write favourable reviews, but not this time...
As I know the "Daniel" in Herzlia, I had high expectations, when my mother, my daughter and myself joined a medical congress at the Daniel Dead Sea.
The building itself is still very nice, but if you look closer, there is negligence all over, especially our bathroom showed the tooth of time - broken marble, rusty bathtub, leaking faucets and the sink was nearly clogged. The room itself was nice, though, and the beds large and comfortable with enough storing space for a prolonged weekend. Unfortunately our balcony faced the parking lot, but we were still able to see some of the dead sea and the surrounding mountains.
When we arrived, the above bathroom was dirty, although we were kept waiting because" the room has to be cleaned", the aircondition wasn"t working (at the dead sea!) and when I tried to complain about it, the reception and the switchboard didn"t answer at all. Generally the service was terrible, terrible, terrible.... At arrival we asked for bathrobes we never received, in the different dining rooms, most of the waiters were unfriendly and unorganized..The hotel was fully booked and they just couldn"t manage it.
The food was quite okay, if you like mediterranian style. Again - they couldn't handle so many people. For example we had to wait quite a while for tablespoons or glasses.
My daughter asked me to mention, that there were lots of flies, though I"m not sure, it's the hotel's fault.
If you can"t walk properly like my mother you should know that there are a lot of stairs to the private hotel beach. There are no toilets on the beach and not enough chairs.
As I know the spa in the Daniel Herzlia, I felt like visiting the poor cousin. I like to emphasize, that the people working there try their best, but the facilities are not as well equipped as the sister hotel in Herzlia. The pools are nice.
